Upcoming Events

Atsushi Iida
Sunday, 19 April 2015 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm

Despite having roughly six years of training, many Japanese EFL college students still cannot express what they want to say in English (Iida, 2011). In this context, students can write grammatically correct sentences, but they don’t feel attached to their writing.

Whatever genre second language writers work on, voice should appear in their texts. This presentation discusses the issue of voice in second language writing and explores one way of developing it by composing haiku. After exploring how the social-expressivist approach can facilitate Japanese students’ develop­ment of voice, the presenter will discuss how haiku fits in with that approach and will show some activities for use in the Japanese EFL classroom.


Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
